  • Stayed for one night in a villa at South Coast. The villa was very nice with a lot of space and privacy. Having a gas fireplace and a huge bathroom were especially nice. The location was great for getting to things like other wineries and the casino nearby. The one negative was how packed and crazy the tasting room was at the actual winery. Was at too busy to enjoy trying the wines.
  • Great weekend getaway. If you need a dinner reservation ask the front desk to make it for you. I spent seven minutes on hold through their phone reservation system while my husband went down to ask the front desk. I was still on hold when he got back, reservation made. All rooms are great. We booked ours through a third party discount app. I’m used to getting the least desirable room when we do that. But even though we had a second floor smaller room (according to the floor map near the door for fire escape routes) it was still fabulous. We occasionally heard the people upstairs walking around, but generally it was really quiet. All the rooms seem to have the large soaking tub and separate shower, balconies or patio, fireplaces, etc. Oh the fireplace is really fake though. Think of it more like a decorative item that looks like fire. Love the energy saving trick that requires you to leave your key in a little box inside the door to have the lights on. Remove the keycard and all the lights turn off, energy saved.
  • If you like more selection of younger, refreshing and fruitier tasting wines, this is the place. If you want reserve wines, you will be referred to go to their sister winery in Carter Estates across the street. South Coast gives you five tastes for $18. You must first purchase a tasting ticket at the register near the main entrance. They have a decent amount of sparkling, white, reds, rose and sweet wines. Their tasting bar is huge but half of them were open when we arrived since it was Tuesday on the same week as Thanksgiving. The staff was knowledgeable with the questions my wife asked them and what wines I was looking for. We were able to split a tasting together. We were able to enjoying our tasting outside too. We just had to walk in each time we wanted another taste. My wife ended up buying a couple bottles while I went out empty handed. I like reserve wines better. Good wines though!
  • I booked the hotel since I was attending a seminar nearby and from the start was impressed with the grounds and the overall peacefulness of the place. The room was spacious and very comfortable, with a balcony overlooking a vineyard. The spa was right behind my building and a little walk took me to the restaurant and wine tasting room. The restaurant was very elegant and the food delicious. I highly recommend the chilaquiles for breakfast. I did some wine tasting and have to agree the reds were my favorite (have read some previous reviews). I also got pampered at the spa, which had complimentary wine with each treatment! Overall, this was a wonderful experience and something I hope I can repeat in the near future!
  • South Coast Winery & Carter Estate Winery have great wine. I visited South Coast for wine tasting and had a great time. This place is in demand so there was a large crowd. Later I went to its sister property Carter Estate Winery and received a much more intimate walk though tasting. I liked both environments and will return.
